The Elegantly Proportioned Artistry And Warm Camelhair Tones of Antique Persian Serab Carpets Add a Joyful Central Focus to This Grand Foyer
This image is from a whole home project in a massive lakeside family compound in the High Sierras. Very few carpets are equal to the grandeur of the most opulent and ambitious Beaux Arts-inspired interiors. This very rare room-size antique Persian Serab camelhair rug handles this challenge with aplomb, brilliantly harmonizing the theme of light and dark that appears in the gilt-iron metalwork and lofty domed ceiling. The 19th century art carpet provides the tactile, human touch that beautifully softens the impact of each commanding decorative feature.
